The Social: Food Photography

18.30

The Social is our bi-monthly advice and networking session for photographers, where participants are encouraged to network and join the conversation. Deliberately informal, each event includes two presentations by photography professionals, who offer tips or advice on the chosen theme, with a short break in between for socialising.

Photographer Yuki Sugiura is joined by Art Director at Octopus Publishing Yasia Williams Leedham to offer tips on the theme of food photography.
